What makes Don Wooldridge a unique writer is the fact that he’s bi-polar.
Whether hypomanic or depressed, Don must find that fine line of clarity to write his stories, like following the lines in a cracked windowpane. Broken Dreams is his fifth publication, preceded by three fiction novels and a memoir recounting his 43-year experience living with bi-polar 2 disorder.
A prolific writer, Don Wooldridge brings his creative energies once more to the forefront, writing of issues that exist within our country; issues he addresses from a humane and valiant perspective. In his Trilogy: Clayton County, Don offers a perspective, different than the Government holds, about bartering. He postures it is more a culture than a tax evasion tactic. He boldly and courageously sought to change the nation’s perspective on living with Bipolar II Disorder in Fear is My Co-Pilot. Deeply loyal to family and friendships,Wooldridge was led to carry on the writings of others in Bible Moments and Yankee Settlement.
Don’s education spans the country, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas to Rutgers University in Brunswick, New Jersey. An accomplished writer, he spent 30 years in the technical training and development arena, as a technical writer, instructional designer, and interactive learning systems designer and producer.
Wooldridge’s career took him far from his roots… throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico as well as England, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden.
Today, Don enjoys using his writing as a vehicle for readers to look at the world around them with more empathy and understanding. He cannot escape his quick humor as it pops up in the many manuscripts he has penned—readers are enriched by it!
Don Wooldridge always welcomes the opportunity to speak about the varied topics his books cover, and his journey as an author. Don offers his services through keynote speaking, book readings and author interviews. His greatest desire is to share the experiences he enjoyed in life, as he turns them into fiction.
